The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a set of requirements designed to ensure that ALL companies that process, store or transmit credit card information maintain a secure environment.
PCI Compliance is required for any business that sees, processes, holds or handles debit or credit card details in an electronic form, which could apply to your website, your retail shop and/or your office.
Using the Net Payments Payment Gateway will allow you to ensure the security of your online payments, and if used as intended, any payments taken in person and over the phone too.
The Net Payments Payment Gateway is PCI DSS Level 1 Compliant. Annual audits by a Qualified Security Assessor (QSA) covers 12 different requirements including physical security, the storage and transmission of credit card data, data security and more.
